As per their social media updates, Don Javier is the founder of this supermarket, which attracts not only thousands of Colombian residents in Florida annually, but also other Americans and people of various nationalities keen on trying Colombian products.

Beyond offering packaged goods, sodas, and other well-known Colombian brands, The Paisas Market also prepares traditional dishes such as morcilla, tamales, and arepas. Despite the challenges of exporting Colombian products to the United States, they emphasize providing a friendly and cost-effective shopping opportunity for their customers.

On social media, the supermarket gives its operating hours as being from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm on weekdays and Saturdays, with a Sunday closing time of approximately 7:00 pm.
